go with Turbo's you have a lot more problems with forced induction than natural aspiration.

Get your car tuned professionally.

You can't just bolt shit up and expect it to work.

Your injectors are most likely the next thing to look at. Do you have power FC?

I'm telling you that it's not running correctly becuase it's not tuned.

You should get a PowerFC or at least a Greddy eManage, which lets you mess with thr fuel maps.

sounds like you should have done some research first. Its like you bolted it on your stock internals. Of course thats one reason. But there can be hundreds of other reasons why. Talk to you so called pro. or take it some place else. Im sure they know much more by looking under the Hood than any one of us could tell you.

it's probably NOT the injectors. It sounds like your tuning is all screwed up.

questions,

1) whats your A/F
2) what FMU is it?
3) which Turbo did you build the kit around?

If you havent dyno tuned it yet then you cant say it was done properly wink

BTW if you have a generic FMU not setup for a celica, Does it understand how to engage and deal with lift? cause if you're dying out at 6K then chances are your "professional" friend may have made a mistake. celicas arent hondas. you cant just throw junk on and expect it to run right. Me and my team have done LOTS of tuning for N/A and Turbo celicas and it's not a simple thing to do correctly lol
